Fungicides are extensively used in industry, agriculture, and the home and garden for a number of purposes. Fungi can cause serious damage in agriculture, resulting in critical losses of yield, quality and profit. At the end of the season, profit is the greatest concern for farmers, so companies will use fungicides to protect seeds during shipment and storage. Fungicides are chemicals used to cure fungal, mold and slime diseases in gardens, lawns, and crops. They are also used in protection of carpet and fabrics in the home.
Historically, some of the most tragic epidemics of pesticide poisoning occurred because of mistaken consumption of seed grain treated with organic mercury or hexachlorobenzene. It is widely believed that fungicides currently in use are generally not toxic to humans for a variety of reasons. It is true that few deaths have been reported but it does not consider the small amounts we get in the foods we eat and what the cumulative effect of those chemicals in our bodies represent as symptoms over time.
The sad truth is that each serving of fresh fruits and vegetables may contain up to 67 different pesticides and fungicides. Studies on cord blood show that most infants are born with around 200 toxic chemicals already in their systems! If that isn't a good reason to go organic, I don't know what is. Fungicides are used both in agriculture and to fight fungal infections in animals. Fungicides are applied routinely in greenhouses to control both above ground and below ground fungal pathogens.
